Covered from the vantage point of a user of a commercial flow package, Essentials of Computational Fluid Dynamics provides the information needed to competently operate a commercial flow solver. This book provides a physical description of fluid flow, outlines the strengths and weaknesses of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), presents the basics of the discretization of the equations, focuses on the understanding of how the flow physics interact with a typical finite-volume discretization, and highlights the approximate nature of CFD. It emphasizes how the physical concepts (mass conservation or momentum balance) are reflected in the CFD solutions while minimizing the required mathematical/numerical background. In addition, it uses cases studies in mechanical/aero and biomedical engineering, includes MATLAB and spreadsheet examples, codes and exercise questions. The book also provides practical demonstrations on core principles and key behaviors and incorporates a wide range of colorful examples of CFD simulations in various fields of engineering. In addition, this author: Introduces basic discretizations, the linear advection equation, and forward, backward and central differences Proposes a prototype discretization (first-order upwind) implemented in a spreadsheet/MATLAB example that highlights the diffusive character Looks at consistency, truncation error, and order of accuracy Analyzes the truncation error of the forward, backward, central differences using simple Taylor analysis Demonstrates how the of upwinding produces Artificial Viscosity (AV) and its importance for stability Explains how to select boundary conditions based on physical considerations Illustrates these concepts in a number of carefully discussed case studies Essentials of Computational Fluid Dynamics provides a solid introduction to the basic principles of practical CFD and serves as a resource for students in mechanical or aerospace engineering taking a first CFD course as well as practicing professionals needing a brief, accessible introduction to CFD.

This book serves as a complete and self-contained introduction tothe principles of Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD)analysis. It is deliberately short (at approximately 300pages) and can be used as a text for the first part of the courseof applied CFD followed by a software tutorial. The mainobjectives of this non-traditional format are: 1) To introduce andexplain, using simple examples where possible, the principles andmethods of CFD analysis and to demystify the `black box’ of aCFD software tool, and 2) To provide a basic understanding of howCFD problems are set and which factors affect the success andfailure of the analysis. Included in the text are themathematical and physical foundations of CFD, formulation of CFDproblems, basic principles of numerical approximation (grids,consistency, convergence, stability, and order of approximation,etc), methods of discretization with focus on finite difference andfinite volume techniques, methods of solution of transient andsteady state problems, commonly used numerical methods for heattransfer and fluid flows, plus a brief introduction into turbulencemodeling.

This book is a brief introduction to the fundamental concepts of computational fluid dynamics (CFD). It is addressed to beginners, and presents the ABC's or bare essentials of CFD in their simplest and most transparent form. The approach taken is to describe the principal analytical tools required, including truncation-error and stability analyses, followed by the basic elements or building blocks of CFD, which are numerical methods for treating sources, diffusion, convection, and pressure waves. Finally, it is shown how those ingredients may be combined to obtain self-contained numerical methods for solving the full equations of fluid dynamics. The book should be suitable for self-study, as a textbook for CFD short courses, and as a supplement to more comprehensive CFD and fluid dynamics texts.

Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics

Development, Application and Analysis

This book is primarily for a first one-semester course on CFD; in mechanical, chemical, and aeronautical engineering. Almost all the existing books on CFD assume knowledge of mathematics in general and differential calculus as well as numerical methods in particular; thus, limiting the readership mostly to the postgraduate curriculum. In this book, an attempt is made to simplify the subject even for readers who have little or no experience in CFD, and without prior knowledge of fluid-dynamics, heattransfer and numerical-methods. The major emphasis is on simplification of the mathematics involved by presenting physical-law (instead of the traditional differential equations) based algebraic-formulations, discussions, and solution-methodology. The physical law based simplified CFD approach (proposed in this book for the first time) keeps the level of mathematics to school education, and also allows the reader to intuitively get started with the computer-programming. Another distinguishing feature of the present book is to effectively link the theory with the computer-program (code). This is done with more pictorial as well as detailed explanation of the numerical methodology. Furthermore, the present book is structured for a module-by-module code-development of the two-dimensional numerical formulation; the codes are given for 2D heat conduction, advection and convection. The present subject involves learning to develop and effectively use a product - a CFD software. The details for the CFD development presented here is the main part of a CFD software. Furthermore, CFD application and analysis are presented by carefully designed example as well as exercise problems; not only limited to fluid dynamics but also includes heat transfer. The reader is trained for a job as CFD developer as well as CFD application engineer; and can also lead to start-ups on the development of "apps" (customized CFD software) for various engineering applications. "Atul has championed the finite volume method which is now the industry standard. He knows the conventional method of discretizing differential equations but has never been satisfied with it. As a result, he has developed a principle that physical laws that characterize the differential equations should be reflected at every stage of discretization and every stage of approximation. This new CFD book is comprehensive and has a stamp of originality of the author. It will bring students closer to the subject and enable them to contribute to it." —Dr. K. Muralidhar, IIT Kanpur, INDIA

Mit diesem nun in der 9. Auflage vorliegenden Buch soll die Strömungslehre einem weiten Kreis, darunter auch Fachleuten verwandter Naturwissenschaften, anschaulich nahegebracht werden. Die Zielsetzung Ludwig Prandtls in den ersten Auflagen hat sich damit in keiner Weise geändert. Der Stoff des Faches ist allerdings außerordentlich angewachsen: Ältere Gebiete wurden vertieft und neue Gebiete sind dazugekommen. Während die Vertiefung jedoch im wesentlichen der in den Literaturverzeichnissen angeführten Spezialliteratur überlassen wurde, fand die Erweiterung der Strömungslehre in der neuen Auflage entsprechenden Raum.

Dieses bewährte Lehrbuch ist eine umfassende und gründliche Darstellung der Wärme- und Stoffübertragung. Ihre Theorie wird systematisch entwickelt, und die Lösungsmethoden aller wichtigen Probleme werden ausführlich behandelt. Alle Gebiete der Wärme- und Stoffübertragung werden dargestellt: Wärmeleitung und Diffusion, konvektiver Wärme- und Stoffaustausch, Wärmetransport beim Kondensieren und Verdampfen, Wärmestrahlung sowie die Berechnung der Wärme- und Stoffübertrager. Die 9. Auflage wurde auf den neusten Stand gebracht, so z.B. die Berechnungsgleichungen und auf Messungen basierende Korrelationen des Wärme- und Stoffübergangs oder die Stoffwerttabellen und das Literaturverzeichnis. Inhaltliche Ergänzungen betreffen vor allem die Kapitel über den Wärmeübergang bei erzwungener turbulenter Strömung, ebenso bei freier und Überlagerung von freier und erzwungener Strömung. Zudem enthalten viele Tabellen nur noch Orientierungswerte und wurden damit übersichtlicher gestaltet.

Modern Fluid Dynamics

Basic Theory and Selected Applications in Macro- and Micro-Fluidics

This textbook covers essentials of traditional and modern fluid dynamics, i. e. , the fundamentals of and basic applications in fluid mechanics and convection heat transfer with brief excursions into fluid-particle dynamics and solid mechanics. Specifically, it is suggested that the book can be used to enhance the knowledge base and skill level of engineering and physics students in macro-scale fluid mechanics (see Chaps. 1–5 and 10), followed by an int- ductory excursion into micro-scale fluid dynamics (see Chaps. 6 to 9). These ten chapters are rather self-contained, i. e. , most of the material of Chaps. 1–10 (or selectively just certain chapters) could be taught in one course, based on the students’ background. Typically, serious seniors and first-year graduate students form a receptive audience (see sample syllabus). Such as target group of students would have had prerequisites in thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and solid mechanics, where Part A would be a welcomed refresher. While introductory fluid mechanics books present the material in progressive order, i. e. , employing an inductive approach from the simple to the more difficult, the present text adopts more of a deductive approach. Indeed, understanding the derivation of the basic equations and then formulating the system-specific equations with suitable boundary conditions are two key steps for proper problem solutions.
